An interdisciplinary project with collaborators from UW Electircal Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Speech and Hearing Sciences, and Linguistics.
The goal of this project is to develop a novel system that we call the Vocal Joystick (VJ). This device will enable individuals with motor impairments to use vocal parameters to control objects on a computer screen (buttons, sliders, etc.) and ultimately electro-mechanical instruments (e.g., robotic arms, wireless home automation devices).
